North Meadow Recreation Center
The Central Park North Meadow Recreation Center is located within the North Meadow at 97th Street.
The Center, formerly a stable, contains a lab responsible for monitoring Central Park's water and soil while teaching kids biology and chemistry. Computer rooms, available for use by visitors, are also located at the Center.
Central Park visitors can borrow North Meadow Recreation Center kits that include various sporting goods, such as frisbees, jump ropes, balls, bats, and hula-hoops. Basketballs, to be used at the Center's basketball courts, are available upon showing a photo id.
